Pizza Danimarca was spontaneously created when I was putting toppings on a pizza and suddenly placed the grated cheese as the white cross of the Danish flag. As other toppings of the pizza I had a vegetarian mince, bell pepper and tomato sauce. It was kind of a vegetarian pizza bolognese. In the end I decided to cover the whole pizza with cheese after all. Otherwise there might have been a protest from my partner. Not that he doesn't appreciate our new home country, but he just really loves his cheese.
There have been a lot of new plant based “mince meat” type of products in the shops here, and I have been sampling a fair share of them. I think that they've all been rather good, firm but tasty, and they've also had nice very affordable pricing. It's a good development to see that more and more people are embracing vegan and vegetarian diets, even in the Nordic countries, where a lot of meat and fish is normally eaten. This of course means that new products are created all the time.
Here are also some photos of a pasta bolognese that I made with one of these products. Maybe I'll need to get more inventive to get beyond pizza and pasta when cooking with these products. Do you have any nice ideas? Are stuffed bell peppers in or out?
Have a nice week!
